P-Nats, Prince William County working on new ballpark plan

Potomac NationalsAfter making several runs at a new ballpark in several years, the Potomac Nationals (High Class A; Carolina League) is in discussions with Prince William County on yet another new ballpark plan.

Let’s face it: Pfitzner Stadium is one of the worst facilities in minor-league baseball and needs replacing. And although Prince William County is considered to be a very good market based on the demographics, its residents probably expect a whole lot more out of the ballpark experience than they’re receiving at Prince William County.

Silber, as we said, has been through this before; previous plans to put a new ballpark on Prince William County-owned land has been met with a lack of enthusiasm from all involved. While Silber has been unwilling to play the nuclear option — threatening to move the team if a new ballpark was not forthcoming — you have got to believe he’s at the end of his patience rope.

So the talk of a new ballpark, perhaps done in conjunction with a developer on the western side of the county near some existing attractions, is good news for him.
